Eason Tsang Ka Wai

b. 1986, Hong Kong

Eason Tsang Ka Wai graduated from the School of Creative Media of City University of Hong Kong in 2013 with a major in Photography. Tsang’s artistic practice has evolved from an exclusive focus on photography to experiments with other media and subjects, such as lightboxes, multimedia, and mixed-media installations, exploring the relation between 2-dimensional images and 3-dimensional spaces. His works foreground a distinct perception that subverts common perspectives on everyday existence in the city, as well as the individual’s powerlessness against the tremendous social mechanism at work.

Tsang’s first solo institution exhibition “A Look at Looking” was held at the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art in Manchester in 2017. Tsang also participated in various international exhibitions including “BRIC-à-brac: The Jumble of Growth” (Today Art Museum, China, 2016); LOVE HONG KONG: Photographs from Hong Kong (1950-2015)” (Le Quadrilatère, France, 2016); “Familiar Otherness: Art Across Northeast Asia” (Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong, 2015); “Imagine there’s no country, Above us only our cities” (Para Site, Hong Kong, 2015); and “CHINA 8- Works in Progress” (Museum Folkwang, Germany, 2015). In 2013, Tsang was shortlisted for the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Awards 2012. His work is collected by Hong Kong Heritage Museum (Hong Kong) and the Kadist Collection (USA and France).

Tsang currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
